Wellington - A New Zealand churchgoer ripped off part of a fellow parishioner's earlobe and gave him a black eye when she became enraged because dishes were not washed after a service, a newspaper reported on Friday.

Ateliana Lei Malu, 52, pleaded guilty in the Palmerston North District Court on Thursday to assaulting the man at a church meeting in March, the Manawatu Standard said.

Police told the court that she wrestled him to the ground, pulled his hair, scratched his face with her fingernails, blacked his eye and ripped off part of his earlobe, which had to be stitched back on.

She was remanded for sentence on June 19.

    Perhaps she was confused and thought god was talking to him and ignoring her.

    Not surprised, some people really 'loooove' cleanliness ('does this fork look clean to you? Does it?!? My goood, you're useless!'... 'look at the smudges on the table' \r\n-'But, I don't see any...' \r\n'Agh leave it, I'll do it myself, you clearly dont want to' #starts cleaning moodily#).
